Join Caroline Wuyts, from KU Leuven - VIB, as she answers questions from a recent webinar where she discusses her research on pregnancy and monitoring glucose availability throughout the reproductive timeline of a mouse model.
Aileen King presents data showing that small alterations to experimental protocol and choice of model can impact on both welfare and data interpretation when studying blood glucose homeostasis in mice.
Dr. Sarah Stanley and Dr. Alexandra Alvarsson discuss the use of whole-organ assessment for the comprehensive examination of pancreatic innervation, revealing close interactions between nerves and islets and dynamic regulation of islet innervation in diabetes.
Michael Czech, PhD discusses adipose tissue "browning" as a treatment for metabolic disease, and presents recent data using light sheet microscopy to visualize functional changes in adipose tissue depots.
Julio Ayala, PhD and Matthew Robinson, PhD share their research focusing on feeding behavior in mice and the effects of stress and exercise on metabolism. They will discuss neuronal activity and high-fat diets as well as mitochondrial remodeling and exercise training in mouse models of obesity.
In this final installment of our Obesity 2020 webinar series, Dr. Lee Kaplan discusses late-breaking research and reviews various mechanisms of action of bariatric and metabolic surgery and how they affect the regulation of energy balance and metabolic function.
